Make Extra Money

Would you like to make extra money?  Let’s face it, the economy is tight.  Many couples have two incomes and still struggle to get by. Everyone could use some extra cash.  I’m sure you can relate.

As a result, more and more people are heading to the internet to find extra ways to make an additional income. Some people are looking for a part-time job, but many others want more control, and want to work for themselves.

I’ve been blessed to be able to work from home full time since 2009.  I don’t have a boss.  I sleep in late and my commute is about 26 paces from my bedroom to my home office.  I truly am a pajama entrepreneur.

If working from home interests you, check out the ideas below.  None of these things are scams.  I use these business models myself to make money.  Check out each link and see if any of them are a good fit for you.

# 1 Get Paid to Shop

One of my favorite ways to make money from home is to earn cash back shopping at stores I normally do business with. Could you imagine earning cash back at Amazon, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, McDondald’s, Office Max, PapaJohn’s and hundreds of other popular stores?  It’s possible.  I do it and so can you.  I belong to a FREE program that lets you do this.  You can learn more about it here.

# 2 Sell Avon

I’m referred to some people as the Avon Dude.  My grandmother sold Avon for more than 40 years and I decided to continue her tradition.  I do it 100% online and don’t keep an inventory.  I don’t sell door to door either. I use Facebook, texting and email to do it.  With Avon, you can earn 20 to 50 percent commissions on your online sales.  It’s fun, and is also a great way to make some extra money.  You can join my Avon team or shop my Avon store by visiting this link.

# 3 Start a Blog

Pretty much all of my income streams, other than eBay, are centered around my blogs.  I own two blogs; this one and another network marketing business related blog.  You can check it out here.

Basically, you pick a subject or niche you enjoy and understand and create a website about it.  If you want step-by-step instructions on how to get started, you can read this page on my other website, which covers all the details.

It’s not an immediate income, but it’s something that you can build up into a significant income within a few years.

# 4 Sell Stuff on eBay

I’ve been selling on eBay for around 13 years.  My wife and I LOVE going to flea markets, yard sales and thrift stores together, whenever we can, looking for treasure to resell.  We sell tons of used clothing, jewelry, books and antiques.

If you’re thinking about selling on eBay the best thing you can do is find 10-20 unneeded items around the house and start by selling those items.  This will give you a feel as to how eBay works, so you can see if it is a good fit for you.

From there the options are endless.  You can check out my eBay store here.  Or, you can order this Beginner’s Guide to eBay book right off of Amazon.

# 5 Write for This Website

I’m always looking for fresh content for this website.  If you are an experienced writer, have military experience, and enjoy sharing your knowledge, feel free to contact me, and let’s set up a time to talk.

I currently have two people writing for me, but I’m always looking for additional perspectives.  You would be an independent contractor, not an employee, and you would be paid by the article, not a salary or hourly wage.

The wage depends upon your experience and writing skills.

Final Thoughts

There you have it folks.  These are just five simple ways to make some extra money in 2018 and beyond.

Of course, you could always get a second job.  But what fun is that?  Nothing beats working from home and working for yourself.

If you have questions about any of these ways of making money, send me an email to or give me a call during business hours, eastern time, at (352) 503-4816.  Have a great day.
